May the force be with… Bonnie McKee.
We’re nearing the illustrious premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and to promote the Adele of movies, the franchise enlisted the help of one of pop’s most successful singer/songwriters, Bonnie McKee. She and !llmind collaborated to create a vibey, mid-tempo tune your inner Jedi can find solace in.
The song, titled “Speed Of Light,” features Darth Vader’s iconic breathing, R2-D2 chirps and lightsabers while McKee sings about shining bright. The inspirational track is part of the movie’s #AwakenYourForce campaign with HP that encourages the creative minds of our young generation to create new music with its technology.
McKee dropped the visual for the song today, showing scenes of the famed writer singing it in a recording studio while a professional dancer jitters around linear laser lights projected around him. Watch it below:
